About This Route

An interesting circular including a section of the Berwickshire Coastal Path and an Old Post Road that leads you to the attractive settlement of Ayton. You will pass an old mill by the Eye Water, a river that powered 13 corn mills, 2 textile mills and 1 paper mill. The number of corn mills is indicative of the fact that arable farming is common in Berwickshire.
